  • $12 million in Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) grants brought forward to allow projects to commence sooner.
  • Funding available for local governments, not-for-profit sport, recreation or community groups to improve local sporting facilities.
  • Applications for grants of up to $2 million will now open on May 25.
  • Regional and remote Aboriginal communities can now apply for up to 100 per cent of the cost of eligible project.

Applications for Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund's (CSRFF) Annual and Forward Planning grants of up to $2 million will now open on Monday 25 May 2020, and close on Friday 11 September 2020.

The grants will allow local not-for-profit sport, recreation or community groups and local governments to develop basic, sustainable infrastructure to increase participation in sport and recreation, while supporting the economy and creating jobs.

Examples of projects that will be considered include new playing surfaces, floodlighting, upgrades to changerooms and ablutions and improvements to clubrooms.

Small grants will be brought forward four to six weeks and Annual and Forward Planning grants will be expedited by three months.

Successful projects will be announced in late 2020, allowing them to commence sooner than would have otherwise been possible.

Additionally, the July 2020 small grants round (for grants up to $100,000) will now open on Tuesday 2 June 2020, and close on Friday 14 August 2020. This will allow the successful applicants to be announced in October 2020.

The State Government administers the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) program through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

The program provides financial assistance to community groups and local governments to develop basic, sustainable infrastructure to increase participation in sport and recreation.
